Binghamton, NY (WBNG Binghamton) B-Sens captain Mark Borowiecki returned to the line-up for the first time in seven games on Friday night. What it showed was there may be no more important player on the team.

Boro posted 2 points on the weekend, but his presence was the bigger factor. After losing six straight without him, the team has won all three games since he's been back.

When asked if it was a coincidence, here's what coach Richardson had to say:

"You could say that with one, but not three-in-three," he said. "He wasn't in for any of the losses, obviously when we were on our streak and now he was in for all three wins. Not only does he bring his physical presence out to the ice for the team, but his leadership qualities on the bench, on the ice and in the dressing room are a big part of our team and they make other people feel confident."

Next up, a trip to Albany on Wednesday night. Binghamton then stays on the road by visiting Norfolk for a pair this weekend.

Lawson hurt in relief of Lehner
Goalie Nathan Lawson entered a 5-2 game against the New York Rangers on Tuesday night in Ottawa. He then left the game with an apparent injury.

If Senators starting goalie Craig Anderson and Lawson are unable to go on Thursday in Tampa, FL. Ottawa's next option would be B-Sens goalie Andrew Hammond.

Hammond is coming off three straight wins over the weekend where he made 90 saves on 95 shots.

B-Sens coach Luke Richardson said Tuesday morning the team planned on taking Scott Greenham to Albany on Wednesday to be the second goalie.
